Challenge 697: The Snapely Alphabet of Places - Riddle House

Located on a hill overlooking Little Hangleton, this house was where Voldemort's grandparents lived before he killed them. It reportedly has had a creepy feeling to it ever since. Would Severus ever have occasion to visit? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Riddle House.

“Got it!” cried the Slytherin seeker, a slender young woman from the European branch of the Scamanders. The Golden Snitch fluttered in her hand, its gleaming metal the only part of girl or equipment that wasn't soaked in mud after a dive into the marsh.

“And Slytherin somehow wins the Cup,” said Lee Jordan. “On a rare clean catch by - “

“Good game,” said Xiomara, holding out her hand to Severus as someone attempted to cut Jordan's mic. “That girl has a future.”

Severus shook the muck off his glove before removing it to shake. “Indeed.”

The action was fierce and fast, but that was to be expected; Hufflepuff's Seeker was rumored to be on the verge of signing with a professional team as soon as she left school. Slytherin's Chasers were equally fast, and the balls flew so quickly even Lee Jordan had trouble keeping the action straight.

Fortunately all concerned, the game was not only fast, but clean. Hufflepuff/Slytherin lacked the venom of Slytherin/Gryffindor, which meant fewer fouls, less rough play, and a refreshing lack of foul language. He hovered low by a stand of bulrushes and kept watch for trouble, just in case.

“And now, ladies and gentlemen! Coming to you straight from Queerditch Marsh, let's welcome the contenders for the Hogwarts House Cup!” Lee Jordan, who had joined the WWN as a sport commentator, flicked his dreadlocks over his shoulder as the crowd roared. “First – the loyal, tenacious, and ever faithful Hufflepuff BADGERS!!!!!!”

Severus, his black and white referee's robes spotless, set his jaw at what he knew was coming.

“And their opponents! Sneaky, sly, and always slippery - “

“Mr. Jordan - “

“The Slytherin SNAKES!”

“That's SERPENTS!” yelled Draco Malfoy's fiancee from the stands.

Only part of Queerditch Marsh was available for play thanks to encroaching Muggles. Worse, Gertie Keddie's cottage was a Grade I listed building operated as a museum, historical site, and tea shop by her descendants.

“There isn't much marsh left,” Ludo Bagman's successor had told Xiomara when she'd approached the Flying Instructor about staging the House Cup at the Marsh, and she hadn't been wrong. The temporary stands had barely enough slope to prevent spectators from toppling to their deaths, and the pitch itself was under a dome.

“It's still an honor,” Xiomara said, and Severus grudgingly agreed.

“It's a tremendous honor,” said Xiomara Hooch, nodding vigorously as she spoke to the WWN reporter. “Being allowed to hold our school championship here at Queerditch Marsh, the very spot where quidditch was invented, is a dream come true for our students. They've been training for weeks to be worthy - “

Severus leaned back into the shadows and thoughtfully ran his fingertips up and down the handle of his broom. Playing at Queerditch Marsh was an honor, yes, but bringing the House Cup back to Slytherin would be sweet indeed after all the years of Albus playing favorites.

Nymphadora sighed. “She says she's fine but I wonder. I'd want a place of my own, but it's not like they asked my opinion.”

The clock chimed the hour, then informed them that it was time for lunch. No one responded, and it went back to its regular tick-tock, tick-tock.

“So. What now?” said Remus.

“My Muggle gran would send polite regrets and a silver chafing dish.” Severus wished they still had some of the firewhisky, and be damned to the hour. “Somehow I don't think that will suffice.”

“Doubtful.” Remus gripped his teacup. “What a mess.”

“Harry's not happy,” Nymphadora reported two days later during a visit. She was halfway between the older and younger generations of the Order in age, which was both useful and terribly annoying according to Andromeda. “Evidently I'm the only person under thirty who's even said 'maybe.'”

“Perhaps he'll change his mind,” said Remus. “What about Arthur and Molly?“

“They asked Bill to cleanse the aura. Evidently it worked.” Nymphadora shook her head. “I don't know.”

Severus made a face. “What does the new Mrs. Potter think? Or is she too besotted with her dunderhead husband to object?”

Dinner was subdued that night, with too many memories and too little cheer. A post-meal flurry of post owls from equally upset Order members did not help, as it quickly became clear that younger members thought it was “time to reclaim the house from bad memories” regardless of what their elders thought. By the time the last missive had been delivered, Remus had drunk enough firewhisky it was all he could do to stagger upstairs to bed.

“We can't go,” Severus said, as the salamander scuttled in the hearth.

“No way,” muttered Remus, burrowing into the sheets. “Nope.”

The door blasted open, char marks on the bannister -

James Potter, body already cold, crumpled where he'd fallen -

Lily, beautiful brilliant Lily, wand still in her hand, his first friend the only woman he'd ever loved -

“For pity's sake, why? They have Grimmauld Place.” Severus carefully lowered himself into the nearest chair. “The house where his parents died?”

“I don't understand it, either.” Remus, face nearly as gray as his hair, shook his head. “I can't imagine this is Ginny's idea. And a fancy housewarming? The Order won't go near the place!”

Severus gaped. “Housewarming?”

“Yes, well - “

Severus paused in the entryway. Remus was crouched next to the hearth, speaking in low, urgent tones to a voice made unrecognizable by a muffliato spell.

“ - dreadful idea – “

Severus quiet set his briefcase on the dining table. Remus glanced over his shoulder, pursed his lips, and turned back to the hearth.

“We'll speak again about this. My best to Ginny,” he said, and there was a brief flash of Harry Potter's visage before the fire went out.

“Remus?”

“They're moving to Godric's Hollow,” said Remus. “To Potter House.”

Located in Godric's Hollow, Potter Cottage stands as a monument to Harry's triumph over Voldemort. We know Severus has been there at least once, but would he have occasion to visit again under more pleasant circumstances? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Potter Cottage.

The moon had risen by the time the dancing had ended. Severus had partnered Minerva while Moony had sat disconsolately by the door, occasionally whisking his tail out of the way of whichever grandchild wanted to yank on it next.

Now the newly minted Potters prepared to throw the bouquet (her) and garter (him) before apparating away. Severus stood off to the side, one hand on Moony's shoulders, as Potter raised the scrap of fabric, shouted something unintelligible, and let fly -

Only to have the garter sail over the crowd to land directly on the hand stroking the wolf.

St. Catchpole's was small and plain – certainly not what the press would have expected for “The Wedding of the Century!!!!” - but Nymphadora was more than sufficient to set the protective wards that would keep gawkers away. By the time Ginny, trailed by her young nieces, walked down the aisle, most of the curious had simply given up and retired to the local pub.

“Potter seems rather too pale for the occasion,” Severus murmured. “Is he well?”

“Ambivalent,” Remus replied. He visibly forced his legs to stop jiggling. “Damn moon.”

Severus gave his hand a squeeze. “Agreed.”

The day of the wedding dawned fine and clear, a good omen. Severus wore his most formal robes, the deep green and silver reserved for Slytherin House events, while Remus was resplendent in fine brown wool, his hair neatly secured with a leather tie. Remus carried a flask with that day's dose of Wolfsbane, while Severus had less restrictive clothing shrunken and in the purse secured on his belt. There would be dancing after the ceremony until well into the night, so they might as well be comfortable until the moon rose in the early evening.

“Ready?”

“Yes.”

They disapparated.

“Handwritten acceptance? Isn't that a bit - “

“Formal?”

“I was about to say 'excessive' since they included a reply card.”

“It's how I was trained. Nothing more.” Severus watched as Remus appropriated the offending card, checked off the “yes” box and wrote “two” next to it. “Remus, those cards are - “

“The modern custom, love.” He smiled. “Just like us.”
